If the Los Angeles Kings
want to record a second-straight come-from-behind win, they have some serious work to do in the third period, trailing 3-1.
The Kings, though, carry momentum into the final 20 minutes here as Anze Kopitar
got a power-play goal in the last minute of the period. With Drew Stafford
in the box for tripping, the Kings moved the puck efficiently around the perimeter -- especially after Paul Gaustad
lost his stick -- until Kopitar got the puck in the high slot and ripped it home over the shoulder of a screened Ryan Miller
and Jack Johnson
, who scored the overtime game-winner Friday night against the Rangers, earned the assists on the goal, which was Kopitar's second in as many games.
It was also the second game in a row that the Kings have scored on the power play, which was a point of emphasis this preseason. Johnson's game-winner Friday came on a 4-on-3 man advantage.
